    I hate to say it, but something about this seems a bit suspicious.

    I found a Facebook page here:

    Poor puppy. Is this a legit request for funds? I can't tell.

    Regardless if legit or not, this is one of the very reasons that people need to be prepared for things to happen if you are breeding…. as they say, "stuff happens"

    I don't know who the breeder might be, would guess BYB

    It looks like this breeder had a litter of pups last year also. I saw an expired ad advertising the 2011 litter for $550 each. I would love to know who the sire and dam is and if this breeder does any health testing!

    I saw that too. I find the whole thing very strange. I couldn't really find any info on the people who put all this stuff up. I'm guessing it was done by the breeder (as opposed to a new puppy owner who put a deposit on the dog and fell in love with the sickly puppy). And I find that a little off-putting as I like Pat believe that as a breeder you have to realize that this sort of thing happens. If it was a person who got/rescued this dog, I'd probably get a wall calendar yesterday. As it is, I'll pass

    Who would pay if the breeder had to pay for a C-section for the dam which is not cheap? This is why BYBs/commercial breeders should not breed. Many think it is so easy with few costs and they will get lots of pups to sell! I talked a few commercial breeders from bidding on Basenjis at the dog auctions-told them about the once a year going into season-pups not being available for sale until after Christmas, possible C-sections, and the not too large litters.

    I had never heard of this problem in this pup until now. It sounds like a developmental problem in the womb not a genetic one. The health website she linked to was for humans not animals/dogs!
